Heminway brings together essays written by legal scholars specializing in both white collar crime and securities regulation concerning the varied legal claims made against Martha Stewart in connection with her sale of shares in ImClone Systems Incorporated in December 2001. The articles present interesting historical facts and analytical observations while raising important questions about the use of discretion in public enforcement proceedings (civil and criminal) and the elements of two popular federal claims: obstruction of justice and securities fraud under Rule 10b-5.
